Rust never sleeps

I haven't been practicing at all lately. I play in a match most weeks, and I've been fairly successful, but at no time this fall have I really felt like I was in control of a match. So I decided I better get myself over to World Class Billiards last night to practice a little bit.

Wow, was my stroke in sorry shape. My game had seriously oxidized. I had some ugly misses, and it was taking me entirely too long to clear the table. I just didn't know where the shots were going. An hour and a half later, I was getting the feel back, and I started to believe in each shot. It was important to get there, but it was even more important to remind myself that I can't take my stroke for granted. I'm going to have to work at keeping the rust off, or my game will slowly start to deteriorate...
